Why hire a traffic ticket defense attorney when I can just choose school to have points removed? One reason is that you only have five (5) times in your life to elect traffic school. If this is your first ever citation, then why burn an election? Save it. If you received two or more citations, then most of the time the only way to have points removed entirely is to take your cases to court.
Another reason to fight your ticket is that the only way to have your traffic ticket or citation dismissed is to choose to have a contested hearing or trial. If you do not have a hearing, you will never have your traffic case dismissed. It sounds crazy but several attorneys will take your money and never go or send anyone to court. There is no reason to hire a law firm if an attorney will not be present in court.
If you are not a driver licensed in Florida, then you should also be aware that the laws of your state may require that you obtain a reduction in speed in order to maintain your driving privilege. Several drivers ensnared in the changing speed limit zones in Waldo, Florida come across this issue. Furthermore, many states do not recognize the election of school to remove points and require a court's order.
